It’s just because the Samsung software has been getting on my nerves and I’ve always been a fan of ”Stock android”

I’m well aware, I should have just bought a pixel but with the rubbish Pixel hardware last year I decided to get the S21 Ultra.
Me too, i like "stock android" since i owned sony xperia z1, z3+. And now when I have a galaxy A50s there is not so much rom for it.
Has anyone tried installing this on a Exynos Galaxy S21 Ultra, if so does it work?
Well i can not give u much infomation because i'm using galaxy a50s but i'm pretty sure the fingerprint sensor won't work, samsung's camera wont work so you should use gcam port , mtp might not work (you can try enable usb debug and change to file transfer mode),... Other things like wifi, bluetooth, nfc,.. should work well. That's all i know

Hello, I cannot install this ROM because my system partition is only 3 Gb, is it really possible to make a ROM without gapps, if yes, then the ROM will fit any phones with a 3 Gb system.
Or tell the ways to increase system partipition to at least 3.7 Gb, I tried to resize the system in twrp but that gave no change.

I already told this: PE without Gapps = vanilla AOSP
So... use this and you will be happy!
If you want PE+ without Gapps, use this provided by @AndyYan and you will be also happy :)
You misunderstood me a little. I meant to make the firmware without gapps, but with a full set of applications and other things like in the firmware with gapps, so that the firmware has a weight of less than 3Gb, and after installing the firmware, install gapps. In this way, more users will be able to use this firmware, since many users have a system partition of about 3Gb.
Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know much about this topic, but I'm trying to say how I understand it.

That's not possible. A lot of PE features rely on overlays and other stuff that are core to PE gapps. I would not even be able to build it... Sorry, you have to find another GSI or remove unneeded gapps from the image by yourself.

Yea now i know that a lot features provided with gapps and without them whole system will mork not that good. But how i can delete unneded gapps from image? I tried to find some guides but but nothing is there. If you can explain how to do this, it will help me a lot. I really want to try your firmware, but my system partition is only 3GB.
Or maybe you know how to increase the size of the system partition. Thanks.

    But it does not fix safety net. Not on my device for sure.
    Safety Net is passing by default. If it's not for you, then you are doing something wrong or you don't have stock boot/vendor or you are playing with your device fingerprint or any other reason that Google doesn't like. Debugging it is really not a walk in the park...

    I Liked a program called solid explorer but it doesnt work. Doesnt want to use folder , neither SD folder. I got a feeling adb tools wont work either.
    The developers have quite got there balls mixed up with permissions . Doesnt make life easier.
    It's funny because you are blamming devs for an issue that only you have... If a simple file explorer doesn't work, then for sure your installation is not clean as you say. Or you just don't know how to use android at all...

    Best GSI since Treble exists. Thank You very much for the GitHub Releases. So neat and clean like that. Love Your work dear @ponces ! Keep it up <3
    Magisk works just fine with ARM64 A/B on My Xperia 5. First GSI besides the GAppless LinageOS 18.X that was functional like that. I will take this GSI as my daily driver. This should be councidered as Official !
